IMine should be here soon I hope...likely bursting at the seams too!

As packed as I could get it after packing 3 or 4 times! Wink

I'm glad you like fabric and hope you can use it! The cookie cutters are from IKEA, I picked myself up a set also and might use them to make cinnamon gift tags or ornaments. Smiley

The measuring tape is fun to make, normally I put the bug on the leaf, but it seemed better in the center.  And the back looked to plain, so I doodled a snail there with thread. Wink

The brown fabric with big flowers is a kitchen towel from Target. Most of the fabric is actually from my stash, and it only made a small dent  Cheesy

Thanks for complimenting my packing prowess, I wanted to squeeze more in but was afraid the box would burst. Grin

I can definitely use it!

What are cinnamon tags?

I think the bee is perfect in the middle. Good call Smiley

I love the brown towell. I think it might have a future life as a throw pillow on my bed Smiley

I don't think it would have been possible to fit anything else in that box!

Cinnamon tags.  Like applesauce cinnamon ornaments, only you add the name of the person the gift is for.  Some of my friends end up using the tags as air fresheners, although it makes you want apple pie a la mode or snickerdoodles a lot. Grin

oh there were some seriously great swap packages received! Pinkadinky you totally scored! Those cookie cutters are wonderful!

And goldfishpollywog, such cute fabric pads!

Okay, my first partner was AsphaltQueen, and she is working overtime and I offered to share my pictures of the package I sent.

AQ is the steampunk queen, (yes as well as asphalt queen, lol) and I offered to tat some pieces she could further decorate.

Clickable pics:

This is an overview of all the tatted pieces:


AQ requested 2 bracelets and 2 motifs, but I'm a spoiler, heehee!:


I wanted AQ to have plenty of lace pieces to use in her jewelry, so I made some bonus pieces:




Then in the Shop the Swap AQ said she loves things that say, "Pave it!," so I knew one more thing she'd just LOVE:


And this is my first resin jewelry piece, inspired by AQ's wist, titled, If dreams had wings. Hard to photograph, but it has rose paper, stamped with a partial clock & clock gears & parts on top. The legs are little latch hooks from a vintage sock knitting machine, and I had some little jewelry pieces, a purse, ruler, and scissors and they fit AQ's craftiness:



There was some extra ephemera for her ATCs but nothing serious.

AQ was so much fun to swap with.

And yesterday I received AQ's package, you can see the SUPER WONDERFUL package I received when I post it all!

What great tatting! It's beautiful even without the extra embellishments that will be added. I love the resin queen you made, too. All the jewelry and other bits really work together well to make an interesting and fun piece!

Now you all can be prepared to swoon in jealousy over what AsphaltQueen sent to me! A crafty OVERLOAD, and stuffed to the point of bursting!

Again, clickable thumbnail pics:

Here is what the box looked like when I opened it:


Now I saw this blue box specially wrapped with a silver bow and inside, OMGoodness! A noisy bracelet from my wist:



So many little wonderful parts, birds, owls and so many pretty beads, I just LOVE it, AQ!!!

Next I saw this bag buried:


and ephemera and stickers:


As I dug through the yarn I discovered 3 white jewelry boxes -- so pretty on the outside and inside, be still my heart! Just the perfect colors to match my clothes, and the cabochon I wore and its just the right length. And a steampunk leaf! Of all your pieces, AQ I think this the best, just right for me.



Then I discovered a special, wonderful piece, brought back from Peru. I love the spindle and the yarn.:


This wasn't all, two large items on the bottom:


The book is so perfect, filled with ideas I can use in the Shop the Swaps!

Okay, I'm thinking there can't be more, can there? and then these wonderful packets are on the side and bottom. Two are holographic you tilt them and they change pictures, the Love says, "love me love me not" and the others you can see, and she sent 48 of them! Also two bundles of greeting card samples as ephemera:


The holographic ones are actually stickers for my card making! and the little ones are great for stacking on cards as swatches!

Now I use a navajo spindle for spinning and so AQ sent me rovings! YAY!!! And not just little ones, the pink/purple is about 30" long and the green is the size of a soccer ball! WooHoo! Thank you so much!


But you are all saying, "yarn, what about the yarn I see yarn in there." SO MUCH yarn, and so soooft! If you could feel it, you would never put it down! The mauve yarn is handspun in Peru and is for weaving ( I weave, too.) There are six skeins of 100% alpaca from Peru, and varigated mohair from italy, and so much of this and that of the finest types. I'll be knitting for a year! It is all so wonderful.

Here are pics from various angles:


It is just so overwhelming!

THANK YOU SO MUCH ASPHALTQUEEN  I just love * love* love it all!
